County Commissioners are the general administrative body for the county government. They can perform those duties which are specifically authorized by the state legislature and no more. They are the county government taxing, budgeting, appropriating and purchasing authority. They hold title to county property. Individual commissioners have no power to act independently. All format and official actions taken by the board of county commissioners acting as a body by majority or unanimous vote. It is the non-statutory duties of the county commissioners that make them different from other county elected officials. By necessity county commissioners must take a broad view of actions necessary to make the county a better place to live. They are key players in bringing new business and industries to their communities, and keeping established employers from moving away. This means creating environments favorable for business growth and development, using tax incentives and infrastructure planning tools.
Counties now must meet state-set benchmarks for moving unemployed residents into jobs, which also has put County Commissioners out front in local employment training and workforce development efforts.
